Kit Kelen #593 - aubade


is there something
first thing to say
a day like this demands?

the world comes in the windows
and the radio tells time

is there a first word?
(let last alone)
a kookaburra says so

so many days
ahead of myself

yet I can confirm the forecast

take a shine off the sky
as sun and rain
in turns deliver

you think in quick quip terms here

have to learn to balance, breathe

and sometimes catch myself at home
largely lounging with a view

everywhere the tasks present

to be fed is for the asking

lie in bed
it’s all ahead

is there a first word there?

much better to offer up a kiss
it hasn’t far to go
